Congratulations to this year's finalists!

Everyone is invited to the awards ceremony, so if you would like to attend simply register here.


Now in its eleventh year, the Derby Food & Drink Awards recognises and celebrates the city's vibrant and growing food and drink sector.

A glittering awards ceremony takes place at the stunning Derby Roundhouse on 7th October 2019 where hundreds of guests will also enjoy an indoor food & drink market.

Before all this, however, its up to the people of Derby to nominate their favourite establishments for ten categories:

Nominations are judged on quality, not quantity, so make sure you consider your nominations carefully - last year over 4,000 nominations were collected!

When the nomination period ends, judges from each category will sample each finalist to select a winner.

Thank you to our 2019 sponsors…
